West Ham United have done something more than any other Premier League club in history.

The Premier League formed back in 1992. West Ham were not involved in the inaugural season but did get promoted the following year.

And the fact that we’ve spent three seasons out of the top flight makes the crazy West Ham stat all the more impressive in my opinion…

West Ham have done something more than any other Premier League club in history

The Hammers haven’t had any kind of real success aside from he odd semi-final or final appearance in cup competitions over the past few decades.

There is a table that we are sitting pretty at the top of though.

Incredibly, West Ham have had 165 different goal-scorers since the Premier League began in 1992, after Nayef Aguerd got off the mark for the club yesterday.

That’s according to Opta, who have highlighted how we currently sit above Tottenham in the all-time table for the amount of different goal-scorers:

That really is some feat from the Hammers.

I’m not necessarily saying that it’s something to be proud of. It probably just means that we’ve had a higher turnover of players than any other club.

However, it is still a remarkable statistic considering the fact that West Ham have been outside the Premier League more than the four clubs below us on that list.

Nayef Aguerd probably won’t score a more important goal for the Hammers than the one that he scored yesterday.

The Moroccan’s strike was absolutely vital for West Ham, and helped us move out of the relegation zone.

In finding the back of the net, the Hammers’ solidified our lead at the top of the ‘most goal-scorers’ table as well. We’ve got to win something haven’t we!!
